About the distillery
Balvenie Distillery, region Speyside, located in Dufftown Was founded in 1892 by William grant. Originally the distillery was built to provide malts for grant's whisky blends however William Grant changed its operation process and the first single malt of Balvenie was released in 1973 however it never managed to push for big recognition in the scotch whisky market as its primary focus was still producing for blends that was until the early 90's when kininvie distillery was opened taking a large proportion of responsibility to produce the blending stock allowing Balvenie to set its priorities on producing single malt whisky, Now one of the most well-known distilleries operating Balvenie is known to a high population of whisky drinkers of producing one of the finest whiskies on the market.
